Villas in Indonesia

Indonesia’s dizzying array of cultures, cuisines, landscapes and seascapes is quite possibly unmatched by anywhere else in the world. The myriad islands – more than 17,000 in fact – that make up this heady, steamy, vibrant archipelago speckle across the equator for nearly 5,000km. A third of these ocean-ringed islands are completely uninhabited, which must surely be a trailblazers dream.

Travellers have been drawn to this mystical region for centuries. More than a thousand years ago traders from as far away as China were sailing to the aromatic Spice Islands of Indonesia, and this precious commodity drew the Europeans in the sixteenth century too. Fast forward a few centuries and this corner of the globe is still a hotspot for foreigners who visit today for its raw beauty and rich culture rather than the spices that pepper its delicious cuisine.

Two of the loveliest islands within Indonesia’s stunning archipelago are Bali and Lombok, each of which comes with its own special charms. Whilst Bali’s cosmopolitan vibe is far removed from Lombok’s quiet, barely developed tourist trade, each island boasts dreamy beaches, volcanic landscapes, fabulous diving, charming culture and gentle, welcoming people.

Straddling the equator, Indonesia has two main seasons – wet between October and April and dry for the rest of the year – with slight geographical variations. The wet season is by no means intolerable, as storms tend to come in sudden bursts in between long spells of sunshine. The Christmas holiday period traditionally attracts a horde of visitors. And, given what awaits them on these unique and exotic islands, this is surely of no surprise.

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Ocean (4BR)

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Ocean (4BR)

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

If you’re into nightlife, shopping and eating out in fancy restaurants, then Villa Ocean at Kembang Desa is not the villa for you, but if you love the great outdoors, the sight and sound of the ocean, the mountains and rural local life, you will love this place… we certainly do. Kembang Desa Villas are among our absolute favourite villas in Bali.

Returning to the villa after a long walk along the beach one evening, a delicious meal awaited us – nothing gourmet, just honest, well-prepared food. The cook produces meals from a tasty repertoire of Balinese / Indonesian / International dishes that hit the spot. We were also delighted by the villa’s collection of hundreds of digital movies – all without the evil scratch demon that can ruin the last five minutes of the most-engrossing films!

Make sure you wake up early in the morning when the air and sky are at their most calm and be rewarded with a mountain vista that will leave you speechless. We felt so privileged to stay in this magnificent location, not many visitors get to venture this far, so it really is a rare pleasure and an experience that will stay with us forever.

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Sunset (6BR)

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Sunset (6BR)

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

Of the four dwellings at Kembang Desa Villas this is the granddaddy family villa of them all and will definitely please the needs of any group, big or small. The views facing the ocean and the land are (almost) indescribably sublime with the power of the ocean to the front and the fecund bounty of the green rice bowl behind. We went for a long walk down the beach in the late afternoon and checked out temples and rock pools and a most glorious sunset.

Villa Kendra

Villa Kendra

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

One of life’s simple pleasures is to drift off to sleep and wake up to the gorgeous smell of tuberose flowers wafting through the air, so we were thrilled to see that Villa Kendra had stocked every suite with a generous arrangement of these classic tropical flowers. Greeted by the staff with fresh watermelon juice and cool hand towels, we were immediately drawn to the pool deck; enjoying the sound of overflowing water against the busy backdrop of the neighbourhood. This villa is perfect for an extended family vacation: mum and dad can take the upstairs master bedroom with the kids in the connecting twin-bedded room, while grandparents, aunts, uncles, or teenagers will be more than happy with the Pool and Garden Suites down below. The kitchen is suitable for light self-catering such as drinks, snacks for the kids and easy meals that don’t require an oven, but the area really lends itself to eating out. After a lazy afternoon by the pool, we decided to go out for dinner and walked 400m to Hana, a small Japanese restaurant, where we tucked into a perfect bowl of ramen and sautéed salmon teriyaki. Then we slowly window-shopped our way to Bintang Supermarket to stock up on a few bits and pieces before heading back to the villa. After a big dose of ultra-hip Jalan Raya Seminyak, we really appreciated the lack of pretension and laid-back family ambiance at Villa Kendra. Next morning, even while we enjoyed our breakfast of poached eggs, whole wheat toast and fresh fruit besides the pool, we were already dreaming about the mezze platter from Zula, just down the street on Jalan Dhyana Pura. Our recommendation: don’t stay at Villa Kendra if you are weight-watching. With the excellent order-in service from Baliepicure and all these tempting treats on your doorstep, you just don’t stand a chance!

Villa Kinara

Villa Kinara

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Considering its heart-of-the-action location in Bali’s sophisticated Seminyak, it’s extraordinary just how serene life is at Villa Kinara. It also beggars belief that this villa is brand new (completed in 2012). Thoughtful design combines classic and timeless Indonesian architecture with twenty-first century luxury and convenience to create a truly delightful villa and one we felt very much at home in. It’s very hard NOT to relax here with a gorgeous garden to enjoy, refreshing pool to dive into and wide breezy balconies and terraces to stretch out on. Then there’s the very convivial pool table and bar area and the massive sofas to curl up on come evening time.

Not only did we admire the size of the bedrooms, but we thought them beautifully furnished and the bathrooms immaculate (two of them have indulgent semi-outdoor tubs). All rooms have plenty of private, comfortable sitting space, and the daybeds outside the upstairs bedrooms are equally inviting.

Although there’s a huge choice of places to eat and drink within easy reach of the villa, a chef is on hand to prepare a wide range of Indonesian and Western favourites for breakfast, lunch and dinner; just talk through your selection with him, or Theodora, Villa Kinara’s friendly and very capable manager, and the rest will be taken care of.

Although it wasn’t a problem during our visit, we thought that the staff quarters might be a bit close to the main living areas and could result some unwanted noise.

Villa Kodok

Villa Kodok

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

As soon as we entered Villa Kodok we felt a real sense of seclusion, serenity and privacy. And we were so impressed with the staff’s from-the-heart service. This lovely team of Balinese people stayed well out of our way but were there in an instant if we needed them. A brass bell is provided to summon them at any time.

The villa was built as a home and has been furnished with love, yet it is also stylish, practical and immaculately maintained. We were delighted to note that there is so much emphasis on children here; it’s a true family-friendly villa with every consideration given to the care, entertainment and safety of guests’ children. Even the fishpond outside the living room has a protective grill over it to deter over-curious kids. The villa has a connection with the nearby Glo Day Spa, so guests get a discount and therapists will come to the villa.

Villa Aliya - Laksmana Villas

Villa Aliya - Laksmana Villas

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

We have no doubt that this villa is a great place for families and for entertaining. One of the bedrooms is also dedicated to the enjoyment of children, furnished with beanbags and equipped with soft toys and games, a large, flatscreen TV,DVD player and a good selection of kids’ movies. The staff really proved their ability to look after us, accommodating all of our last minute requests with willingness, ease and big Balinese smiles. The location in Seminyak is absolutely superb, and the villa is gorgeous!

Villa Leha Leha

Villa Leha Leha

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Leha Leha is meticulously maintained, and looks as good as new despite it being ten years old. Granted the kitchen has been upgraded in the last two years but the rest of the villa is tidily kept, beautifully clean and the soft furnishings flush with colour. Judging by the photographs scattered around the property this is a cherished holiday home. It is independently run by the owner with the assistance of two resident managers in charge of handling guest relations both of whom we found to be polite, knowledgeable and able to speak good English. Pickups from the airport were included in the rate, and a car with driver (one of the managers) was available to us throughout our stay (first tank of petrol free). Since there are two master bedrooms, we felt this villa would be great for two families holidaying together as well as for groups of friends or one extended family. The dual storey pavilion certainly maximised living space, although in absence of ceiling fans the upper floor lounge tended to get quite hot during the day. The villa’s proficient resident cook offers Indonesian fare – though ordering in or dining out at one of Sanur’s many restaurants increases your options. It’s also possible to arrange for an Italian chef to cook for you at the villa, but fees are quite steep ($150-200 plus grocery costs), so we felt that this option might be best saved for a special occasion; that said, he is very highly recommended in the guest book so perhaps it’s worth the extra splurge!

Lila Bamboo Villa

Lila Bamboo Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

We loved the grand scale of Lila Bamboo, which allows the heart to open and take in the beauty of the place—and there is beauty everywhere, in the views, in the Asian art and antiques, and the construction details of the house itself, clearly built by hand. The natural materials and open-air ventilation create an atmosphere that is immediately relaxing and rejuvenating, and which seemed to grow deeper the longer we stayed.

As we were travelling with two teenage children, we were at first concerned that they would not have enough to entertain them, since there is no television; but they had brought their laptops (which functioned perfectly with the good WiFi connection everywhere); and immediately got into the spirit of the house. They loved their rooms, with their cabin-in-the-forest feel and huge bathrooms. We had lunch together in the large living room on their floor, which was also great for board games (we brought along our own). The children also spent a lot of time exploring the river and visiting the organic gardens of the ashram. They made friends with the cows and three Golden Retrievers. The swimming pool was a blessing for us all, so fresh at all hours of the day.

The staff were gracious and competent. The house manager, Alfian, greeted us when we arrived and checked on us often. The two Balinese women looking after the house were a bit shy of speaking English, but they seemed to know exactly what we needed at any moment. On arrival we were immediately offered a glass of fresh coconut water—a most restorative drink full of nutrients. It came from coconut palms growing on the grounds, and a pitcher was always on hand, constantly refreshed.

We had great meals during our stay—some in Ubud and some at the villa. Dinner at the massive dining table felt like being in a castle. The freelance cook was brought in with a day’s notice, which meant that a bit of menu planning was necessary, but that will still be the case when a permanent cook is hired (in the plans), since staff need time to shop for fresh produce at the local market.

The Lotus Residence

The Lotus Residence

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

When holidaying at The Lotus Residence, you just won’t want to leave the premises. We didn’t. We didn’t need to!  Everything you could possibly need for relaxation and fun are right here; swimming pools, jacuzzi, plunge pool, a yoga/pilates studio, a choice of sitting, dining and chilling spots, a fascinating working rice field within the grounds, a gorgeous spa at the bottom of the garden, and space – lots of it.

The spa was our second port of call after a dip in the swimming pool, and we spent a delightful couple of hours there having a massage, a sauna and a rain-rinsed soak in the jacuzzi. There’s an icy plunge pool for the adventurous (or foolhardy, which, according to one of us, worked in perfect tandem with the sauna. The other one of us disagreed!

And while the kitchen might not grace the pages of Vogue Interiors (it’s built for staff use but contains every appliance and condiment you could need), we’re sure that if Gordon Ramsey turned up he’d clap his hands and say, “We can work with this. Let’s get cracking.” The meals produced here – the villa operates a priced menu, but special requests are catered for – is stupendous!

If you should feel the urge to escape from this jungle paradise, there’s a fabulous golf course as well as some remote beaches within a 20-minute drive. The sea can be a bit treacherous, however - only for strong swimmers.
